Wow! I never thought this day would come. House ending!? Well, of course it had to at some point. All the great shows reach an end. It just really sucks when they do. Then you’re left searching for a replacement and it’s never as good. And um, how do you replace House anyhow?
Hugh Laurie told the U.K.’s Radio Times,
“The end of that [eighth] season looks like the end of the show. That’s as far as they’ve got me for.”
Laurie told Parade,
“Doing weekly TV is like joining the Navy and going on the other side of the world for 10 months of the year. But the truth is that whatever challenging situation you’re in, somebody somewhere has got a much more extreme version. So I think one ought to shut up and not moan about it.”
So how will they “kill” the series? Laurie said,
“We don’t talk about when we’ll pack it in. When the time comes, I think it would be good to have sort of a clean finish rather than just sort [of] trailing off. I’d like to go out with a bang, not a whimper.”
Did you know that he make $400,000 an episode? Yeah, that is a ton…. but nothing compared to what Charlie Sheen was getting on Two and a Half Men…. $2 million!
How bummed are to see House go bye bye?
